Democratic National Committee chair Jaime Harrison is lashing out at Republicans as his party sinks in polls ahead of the 2022 midterms. He is desperately trying to label Republicans as fascists. Harrison is particularly angry about comments Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) recently made about Biden's Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown-Jackson. Democrats seem to have completely forgotten their treatment of Brett Kavanaugh.

I have to hand it the GOP, I did not expect the Republican National Convention to be as effective and good as it was. It was the greatest show on earth for those four nights, driving home messaging that was extremely damaging to Joe Biden and reaching out to voter groups that are not traditional Republican voters.

Other than some of the key speeches, I skipped most of the live coverage of the Democrat National Convention. When I tried to watch, it was unbearable, like watching a never-ending public service announcement from the Ad Council. So I missed the live coverage of "Michael from Rhode Island" presented by the DNC as a "longstanding Republican for a long time" who is voting for Biden.

Obama's 2020 DNC speech was almost the opposite of the 2004 DNC speech that propelled him onto the national stage. If you watched this week, you heard very little about hope and the things that bring Americans together. Instead, this was a dark speech that was heavier on Obama's dislike of Trump than why you should vote for Joe Biden. MSNBC's Rachel Maddow loved the speech, naturally, but it also scared her.

So first of all, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez spoke for over 90 seconds, but that matters far less than the fact that she used her tiny pre-recorded time slot to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders for president over the presumptive nominee, former Vice President Biden.

Anyone who remembers the 2016 Republican primary knows that former Ohio Governor John Kasich loves nothing more than the sound of his own voice. So it should come as no surprise that he is ditching his allegiance to the Republicans in order to speak at the Democratic National Convention in support of Joe Biden. Do you think he'll mention that his father was a mailman?
